So, what are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may store on your computer to perform a certain function. For example, a cookie might be used when a website needs to remember who you are in order to point you towards content that matches up well with your previous visits.
Some cookies will be used to store personal information about your visit; a website that allows you to ‘remember me’ during a log-in process might store your username to ensure that you only have to enter it once, and by doing so make your subsequent visits easier. However, most cookies won’t collect such personal information and will instead collect more general details such as the page within the site that you have visited the most.
